Get started with the Turso CLI
The Turso CLI is the main interface to work with Turso databases. You can use it to create, destroy, replicate, and query a database.
The following are requirements to get started with Turso using the CLI:
- macOS, Linux, or WSL
- A GitHub account
- Familiarity with a unix style command shell (e.g. bash)
Turso requires that you log in using a GitHub account. During the public beta, any databases you create while logged in effectively belong to that account.
Follow along with the commands shown in this tutorial to learn about how the Turso CLI works.
